CheesecakeThis has got to be one of my favorite days of the year! National Cheesecake Day!

Cheesecake is a delicious, delectable, delightful dessert, loved by millions around the country.  This sweet concoction is a mixture of soft fresh cheese, cream cheese or cottage cheese, eggs and sugar on a crust made from crushed graham crackers, crushed cookies, pastry, or sponge cake. There are many flavors to choose from… blueberry, strawberry, pumpkin, chocolate, key lime, lemon, orange, raspberry, toffee, caramel…oh my!

It is believed cheesecake originated in ancient Greece. However, today, this spectacular creation is loved around the world. So, today, on this ‘glorious holiday’, go out and enjoy a slice (or two) to show your appreciation.
